Malkerns is situated 22 kilometers from Swaziland’s second largest urban centre, Manzini. While considered a sleepy town by outsiders, characterised by bountiful sugar cane fields and pineapple valleys, the area offers much in the way of tourist attractions.
Swaziland’s premier park, Mkhaya Game Reserve lies on the outskirts of the town and is home to four members of the Big Five. It is a sanctuary for numerous endangered animals, including the black rhino, who roam freely in the open African savannahs. Visitors can spot a wide selection of game, including herds of Nguni cattle, Nile crocodiles, hippos and many varieties of bird.
While Malkerns offers many outdoor activities to visitors, white water rafting on the mighty Usutu River is the ultimate adventure for adrenaline junkies. Those in search of something more relaxing can enjoy fly fishing on the water’s edge.
Learn about the history of the country at the Swaziland National Museum. The museum, which is run by the Swaziland National Trust Commission, has numerous display rooms showcasing the cultural heritage of the Swazi people. Due to the immense national pride of the country, a travelling museum makes its way through Swaziland to educate scholars about their origins. Additionally, an outreach program is run for schools in need, refugee camps and adult education centres.
Visitors are advised to take a trip to the King Sobhuza Memorial Park, a national landmark that honors King Sobhuza who led Swaziland to independence in 1968.
Tourists in search of curios and memorabilia can find a wide selection of unique curios at the heart of the town - from decorative candles to basket ware and batiks (traditional cloths painted with wax-resistant dye).
A visit to the Malandelas Restaurant and bar should be on the itinerary of any beer-drinker or foodie. Here, you’ll have a taste of the authentic fare, drink craft brew, and if you’re lucky, learn about the town from the local pub-dwellers.
